Meeting Management - Wound Clinic Business

The Wound Clinic Business meetings continue to educate professionals across the United States on reimbursement and coding updates needed each year. We are looking forward to returning to in-person meetings next spring. 

Maintaining the status quo is no longer a strategy for winning the reimbursement “game.” Wound/ulcer management professionals and providers must “raise their game” by making reimbursement “game plans” for their offices and/or their hospital-owned outpatient wound/ulcer management provider- based departments (PBDs) by:

  • Incorporating new/revised codes into their “practices”
  • Refining business models to align with current payment “rules”
  • Using coverage policies as their “playbook”
  • Establishing internal audit programs to prevent “fumbles, interceptions, turnovers, and penalties”

  • Coding & Billing Personnel
  • Audit Directors & Revenue Cycle Managers
  • Medical Directors
  • C-Level Executives (CEO/COO/CFO)
